Damn, this series of Love Island is more dramatic than a Married at First Sight dinner party.

When it was announced that an All Stars spin-off was in the works we had our concerns but the producers and Islanders have seriously brought the drama and it all came to a head in the PDA Awards.

One person who is at the forefront of the drama this season, is Love Island 2018 'loyal babe' Georgia Steel.

From Callum Jones and his iconic "proof is in the pudding...Yorkshire pudding," joke to all the cringey acceptance speeches, ahem Anton Danyluk, ahem, the PDA's made for unforgettable TV.

Speaking of unforgettable telly, who remembers when Georgia teamed up with another Islander for an episode of Antiques Road Trip?

Working alongside Wes Nelson, Georgia was a contestant on the TV show and honestly what a rollercoaster of random that was.

Usually Love Island stars take part in Celebs Go Dating or Dancing on Ice and although they appeared on those shows, Georgia and Wes also decided to head up north for some antique hunting.

The duo made their surprise appearance on the show back in 2019 alongside the show's experts Izzie Balmer and Phil Serrell.

The episode saw the reality stars battling it out for the Road Trip crown, after they were given £400 and a classic car to travel Yorkshire and find some bargains to then sell at auction. The winner would be the person who made the most profit.

And even better, all of the profits were donated to Children In Need.

Fans couldn't believe what they were seeing but the pair got rave reviews, saying they were well suited to the show.

One Twitter user wrote, "I don't usually endorse reality TV stars tbh Wes Nelson and Georgia Steel are down to earth (Lovely people) Brilliant laugh Wes and Georgia #AntiquesRoadTrip #CelebrityAntiquesRoadTrip", while another commented, "Wow. I’m speechless."

A third said, "I think you have the basis of a new show - Georgia Steel and Philip Serrell go shopping - I’d watch it!" and a fourth relied to Georgia's promotional tweet for the show, adding, "You was great hun, very funny and smashed it!"

A fifth viewer hilariously said, "Fun episode Mr Serrell had his hands full" (Georgia cannot and will not be tamed) and sixth commented, "Loved this! It's nice to see the Love Island contestants coming across well."

WELL, this is a far cry from Georgia's current Love Island situation as she finds herself receiving backlash for being caught up in a Toby Aromolaran/Arabella Chi/Callum/Molly Smith/Tom Clare love...hexagon, would it be?

We don't even know anymore.
